Around 150 families turned out for Truro School’s recent open morning when they had the the chance to take part in a range of activities including creating Harry Potter flames in chemistry, the Viking Quest in history and a chance to take to the spotlight in Truro School’s 200-seat drama theatre.

One particular highlight included a chance to take a sneak peek inside Truro School’s new outdoor broadcast truck. Visitors were also allowed to have a go with the professional film cameras that students use during Wednesday afternoon film club and live web-broadcasts.

Jayne Grigg, director of admissions, said: “The open morning is a great opportunity for both children and parents to get a real taste of what Truro School has to offer. All of the activities on show are embedded in our curriculum or are alternatively available as Wednesday afternoon co-curricular options.”

During the open morning, head master Andrew Gordon-Brown delivered two presentations to packed audiences in the school’s chapel. Afterwards he said: “I hope that our visitors today are left with a strong sense of the inclusive and community-minded school that we are. I would like to thank all of the staff and student volunteers who came together and dedicated their time to create a successful open morning.”
